FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshell on Hillary Clinton yesterday when he reopened the investigation into her use of a personal email. server as Secretary of State. Now, unfortunately, his job is on the line…
Department of Justice officials just revealed that Comey was told that sending out that letter about new pertinent emails regarding Hillary Clinton would be in violation of department policy.
“Director Comey understood our position. He heard it from Justice leadership,” one employee told The Washington Post. “It was conveyed to the FBI, and Comey made an independent decision to alert the Hill. He is operating independently of the Justice Department. And he knows it.”
CNN reported that this order came from the top, although Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates strongly objected to this. Officials said there was little Lynch could do to stop Comey, given her controversial meeting with Bill Clinton.
